Neir Gigi, partner and head of sales at Knight Frank’s St. John’s Wood office, on why local knowledge is key

Neir Gigi Knight Frank

Over the past 127 years, Knight Frank has become a global leader in real estate. Founded in 1896 and headquartered in London, we are one of the world’s leading independent property consultancies. We go where our clients need us – with local expertise at a global level – and we are determined to provide the best service possible. This has led to our recognition as a global leader in exceptional customer service. We are based in over 50 territories, with 600 offices and over 20,000 people – one global network.

We have some of the most experienced agents working at our long-established offices in the desirable London postcodes of leafy St. John’s Wood and world-famous Hampstead, they are able to offer exclusive access to some of the area’s best on- an off-market homes. A Prime central London address, the verdant St. John’s Wood borders Regent’s Park, Marylebone and Maida Vale. It’s a postcode of bookish refinement, a quiet north west London enclave that remains a hotspot among domestic and international buyers, thanks to its village-like feel, excellent property stock and proximity to central London.

Less than two miles up the road, picture yourself walking across Hampstead Heath with your kids and dog in tow; it’s easy to forget that you’re still in London here – a mere 10 minute drive from Regent’s Park, no less. But as you reach the summit of the northern heights in Hampstead, you take in panoramic views of the city, which remind you of its proximity – Parliament Hill is a particularly good vantage point from which to admire the city skyline. We know most things there are to know about these areas, and can answer any questions related to living in St. John’s Wood, Hampstead and across north west London.

We can advise on which property will suit your lifestyle long-term, including pointing out the area’s best new bars and restaurants, where to pick up the best ingredients for an upcoming dinner party, and even which primary or secondary school your child should apply to if you’re relocating from abroad.

If you would like some sound advice, or to find out more about living in north west London, speak to me: listed in the Spear’s 500 Property Advisers Index, I have extensive experience in the residential sector spanning 25 years across the Prime and Super Prime property markets.
